YMMV / The French Connection

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Popeye and Sonny's informant asks "You talkin' to me, baby?" when they stage a bust to get information from him.
  • Narm:
    • Popeye's introductory scene, where, while dressed as Santa Claus, he and Cloudy catch a drug dealer, then proceed to kick the absolute shit out of him.
    • The search for the drugs in the car. As car buff Jonathan Banks pointed out after doing a Shout-Out to the scene in Better Call Saul, the rocker panels are one of the most obvious places to stash things.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The final scenes in the deserted crematorium, accompanied by Don Ellis' eerily dissonant trumpet score and punctuated with Doyle's gunshots, are damn creepy.
